Debut conceptual work by Italian band Whales And Aurora represents classical post metal. If you can imagine a mixture of melodic passages typical for ISIS, powerful guitar riffs in the vein of early Pelican and energetic vocals of Cult of Luna, you know what can be found at «The Shipwreck». Despite this fact, the music features some originality creating emotional landscapes in all seven tracks of the new album. The album is recorded at Raptor Studio and produced by Matteo “Ciube” Tabacco and Chris Dowhan from Planet Red Studios who also worked with Giant, Spitfire, Night Like These and The Black Dahlia Murder.

I had my fair share of doubts when I saw this band’s name, Whales And Aurora made me think of Metalcore and that’s not very well received in my player, never. But I was wrong again for the most part, Whales And Aurora are a Sludge Doom Post-Metal band from Italy and that’s something I can dig. The cover artwork of this album is great, it perfectly portrays what happens inhere in terms of music. The ocean is perfect for this: at times calm and beautiful, at times whirling and threatening just like WAA’s music. This is a good band and “The Shipwreck” might be a good choice if you’re into post-metal but a bit of versatility on vocals won’t hurt them.

Hajókázásra invitálom a kedves olvasót.. azaz nem én, hanem az olasz Whales And Aurora zenekar, akiknek úgy tűnik, az észak-itáliai napsütés se elég ahhoz, hogy az élet fényes oldalát szem előtt tartva vegyék kezükbe a hangszereiket. Erről a hajóútról ugyanis nincs visszatérés, a résztvevőnek csak merengést, emlékezést, befordulást és fájdalmat ígér, elmerülést a lélek legsötétebb mélységeiben, ahogy a borítón látható hajó merülhet el a tenger fenekén.

A zenekar 2008-ban jött létre a LaPeste és a The Simple Truth zenekar tagjaiból (egészen biztos vagyok benne, hogy mindenki ismeri őket, hehe), és az itt bemutatott The Shipwreck az elsőszülött, meglehetősen ígéretes lemezük a Slow Burn Records gondozásában. Stílusát tekintve a sludge és a post metal illik hozzá leginkább, saját bevallásuk szerint a 70-es évek pszichedelikus rockzenéje (konkrétan a Pink Floyd), a jelenleg jól menő post-rock irányvonal és persze a sludge ihlette meg zenéjüket, szerintem nyugodtan megemlíthető külön a Neurosis is.

Mindezen hatásokat beépítve tehát lehangolták hangszereiket és saját magukat is, és elkészült a közel háromnegyedórás masszív fájdalom- és kétségbeesésmassza. Mindezen érzelmeket nagyon is átélhetően és átérezhetően adagolva öntötték számokba, összesen hétbe, amelyből három rövidebb instrumentális darab és négy hosszabb, igényesen felépített, szöveggel is ellátott dal található a Shipwrecken.

A nyitó Refused Recounting Words ugyan nem instrumentális, mégis van valami intro jellege, mivel a vokál nagyon későn jön be. A magam részéről nehezen viselem a kizárólag üvöltésből álló éneket, ugyanakkor itt valahogy tényleg csak ez illik be a képbe, és teszi igazán a lélek mélyéig hatóvá a szenvedésnek itt megzenésített fokát. Az Achieving The Unavoidable a lemez leghosszabb dala, ami azonban korántsem válik unalmassá, a hosszan elnyújtott, főként a ritmusszekcióra épülő résznél érzi az ember a leginkább, hogy szépen lassan, kézen fogva vezetik a lélek legtávolabbi mélységeibe. Ezt egy rövid instrumentális darab követi, amit kifejezetten vizuálisnak érzek (ez egyébként az egész albumra igaz), mintha valami hullámzó tenger moraja lenne.
Az Abandoned Among Echoes az album csúcspontja; a szép, harmonikus felütésből az abszolút kétségbeesésbe és fájdalomba taszítja az embert, amelyből nem is engedi aztán már el, csak a záró gitártéma hoz valamiféle szomorú megnyugvást, csakúgy, mint a következő Awakened By The Aurora. Az utolsó előtti A New Awareness befejezése kifejezetten katarktikus, a Floating On Calm Waters pedig a vihar utáni csend megfestése zenei eszközökkel, melynek hatására az ember szinte látja a hajóroncsot a tenger fenekén.

Összességében kifejezetten tetszetős lemezt szabadítottak az olasz fiúk a világra így elsőre, amelynek kíváncsian várom a folytatását. Nem tudok felhozni kifejezetten negatív elemeket benne, talán nincsenek is, csupán kiemelkedő alkotásnak nem tartom a Shipwreck-et, de nem tartom kizártnak, hogy a következő albumuk már az lesz.

What? An eclectic mix of doom, post, gaze, and psychedelic influences based around a nautical theme? To quote Homer J Simpson, “Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter. ”

The Shipwreck marks the debut of the Italian seafaring quintet, Whales And Aurora.

Musically these mariners are much more akin to their Netherlander counterparts in Ortega than the German disciples of Melville, although Ahab seems to have turned in this direction as well.

The songs and the album itself build, ebb, and flow based primarily around the regularly charted waters of the prototypical post-metal build up, only W&A seem to execute it more convincingly than most the similar releases I’ve reviewed. Both songs and the album in general also fall away to quiet, serene sections.

Much like the sea itself, the album is a mix of tranquil beauty and raging waters.

Some of the tracks feature raw-throated, hoarse shouted vocals espousing Sartre-esque views on consuming a steady diet of negativity and, thus, accepting angst. Give the band credit for deviating from the obvious shipwreck-centric lyrics one might expect.

The remainder of the tracks, “The Aground Hard-ship”, “Awakened By The Aurora”, and “Floating On Calm Waters” (a beautiful album closer) are instrumental pieces.

Truthfully, on the port side they aren’t doing anything that hasn’t been done before. However on the starboard side, the whole thing is just crafted and performed well enough that it didn’t matter terribly much at all to me that they were happy to sail around the Adriatic rather than head for that dark, unexplored corner of the metal map which warns “There be dragons!”

The first effort from Whales And Aurora is about as enjoyable as a booze cruise… a shipwreck of a release it is not.

Il post metal è diventato per il sottoscritto uno di quei generi che o amo da impazzire, o odio profondamente, ciò è scaturito da una continua esposizione a prestazioni musicali che frequentemente si limitavano a ricalcare le orme già impresse da grandi nomi quali sono Neurosis, Isis e Cult Of Luna.
In Italia come stiamo messi? Siamo messi bene, di certo non mancano le band che danno prepotentemente spallate per farsi conoscere e apprezzare, chi non c’invidia act come i Lento, gli Ufomammut e perché non citare formazioni in ascesa come i Sunpocrisy e Quiet In The Cave? A questa schiera si aggiunge un quintetto vicentino che si è fatto attendere ma che è adesso pronto a dire la propria con il debutto “The Shipwreck”, loro sono i Whales And Aurora.
Collera, rabbia, solitudine, alienazione, fuga dal mondo, rivalsa, è un impianto emotivo instabile, cantilenante per non dire altalenante quello che si scatena roboante all’interno dei brani, la prestazione strumentale sembra volersi posizionare in due distinti e separati modi per dare vita a queste sensazioni.
La prima parte del lavoro sfrutta le canzoni nella quale vi è la componente vocale ottimamente curata per impostazione ed esecuzione da Alberto Brunello, forse un tantino similare a quella di Klas Rydberg in certe inclinazioni, per fornire un corpo e un peso evidente alle movenze più astiose e cupe, lasciando che l’angoscia esploda in una riottosa e volitiva presa di coscienza, a tal proposito “Refused Recounting Words”, “Achieving The Unavoidable”, lo strumentale ambient dissestante “The Aground Hard-Ship” e “Abandoned Among Echoes” ne sono la furente e avvilente rappresentazione che nell’ultima sta già modificando il tiro, è un gioco di contrasti quello che rende affascinante il trascorrere dei minuti che ci conducono alla seconda metà del platter nella quale la sinfonia prende veramente altra piega.
Con l’entrare delle note delicate, sognanti, un po’ floydiane del secondo pezzo strumentale, “Awakened By The Aurora”, l’atmosfera sinora ricoperta da fitte nubi lasciare intravedere, seppur in maniera sparuta, spiragli che permettono lievi infiltrazioni di luce, sembra di assistere alla quiete dopo la tempesta e la sensazione viene rimarcata nella successiva “A New Awareness” nel quale si ha la netta impressione che il meccanismo che azionato dalla musica produceva un grigiore insistente sia stato adesso sostituito da uno nel quale vi è una concentrazione di bianco non più indifferente, la robustezza della canzone serve non più a liberarsi, a sfogarsi ma a dimostrare che si è raggiunto l’obbiettivo prefissato, la presa di coscienza che conduce alla schiarita accompagnata dalla coda, ancora una volta unicamente affidata alla sezione strumentale, “Floating On Calm Waters”.
Gli Whales And Aurora han fatto centro al primo colpo, era facile? Assolutamente no. Preventivato? Ma quando mai.
I vicentini si candidano prepotentemente a divenire una delle band di punta della scena nel nostro stivale, cosa fare quindi se non consigliarvi l’acquisto di “The Shipwreck”.
Giacomo Leopardi scrisse: “così tra questa immensità s’annega il pensier mio: e il naufragar m’è dolce in questo mare”, chi dice che lo stesso non vi accada in loro compagnia? Per avere una risposta le uniche azioni possibili da mettere in atto sono ascoltare e lasciarsi andare.

Whales And Aurora to kolejne włoskie odkrycie rosyjskiego Slow Burn Records. Swego czasu Rosjanie wydali bardzo udany debiut A Cold Dead Body, teraz wyłowili kolejną interesującą formację z Półwyspu Apenińskiego.

Na dodatek poruszającą się w tych samych post-metalowych rejonach muzycznych. Skoro tak, pozostaje jedno wyjście, zdecydować się czy chce się grać na modłę Neurosis, Isis czy Cult Of Luna. Nie ma siły, żeby band poruszający się w tych klimatach nie czerpał ze spuścizny któregoś z wymienionych. Whales And Aurora postawili na Szwedów. I nic w tym złego, nawet się cieszę, gdyż zrobili to z głową. “The Shipwreck” przynosi kawał porządnego grania, które mimo że nie zostanie laureatem konkursu na oryginalność, stanowi jasny punkt na post-metalowej mapie.

Formacja Whales And Aurora powstała w 2008 roku. Początkowo funkcjonowała jako trio, później przekształciła się w kwintet, który równie dużo czasu, co na granie, poświęcał na dyskusje, co grać. Wreszcie muzycy doszli do wniosku, że cokolwiek wyjdzie spod ich rąk ma być nasycone emocjami. Jak postanowili, tak zrobili.

Włosi swój los dwójce fachowców, ale z zupełnie innej beczki. Matteo “Ciube” Tabacco i Chris Dowhan z Planet Red Studio produkowali płyty m.in.: Giant, znakomitego hardcorowego Spitfire czy The Black Dahlia Murder, czyli raczej bez doświadczenia w post-metalu. Wzajemne zaufanie jakim się panowie obdarzyli zaowocowało bardzo dobrym brzmieniem “The Shipwreck”. Album to siedem długich numerów nawiązujących, jak wspomniałem, do twórczości Cult Of Luna głównie z okresu “Salvation”. Surowe, czytelne, mocne brzmienie gitar i rozwrzeszczany, przeszywający wokal Alberto Brunello, który jako żywo przypomina duet z COL.

Okładka jest bardzo adekwatna do zawartości krążka. Wzburzone morze i statek, jakby z trudem unoszący się na powierzchni wody. Odnosi się wrażenie, że jego los został już przesądzony. Whales And Aurora operują prostymi środkami, numery swobodnie płyną, czasem eden temat ogrywany jest przez kilka minut, ale na tyle umiejętnie, że nie odczuwa się znużenia, przeciwnie, meldujemy się na pokładzie i dajemy się ponieść prądowi dźwięków. Innym razem, tematy przechodzą jeden w drugi, zawsze jednak angażując słuchacza. Muzyka to wznosi się, to opada, ale swoiste napięcie towarzyszy cały czas. Długie okresy ciszy i nadchodzący sztorm. A prowadzą przez to wszystko miarowe uderzenia perkusji i buzujący transowy bas. Muzyka raz jest przepełniona emocjami, porywa kolejny temat gitarowy, rozdarty wokal; innym razem cechuje się bardziej refleksyjnym, melancholijnym charakterem, w tych chwilach zespół ciąży w stronę post-rocka. Wystarczy posłuchać “Achieving The Unavoidable”, który klimatem przypomina “Leave Me Here” wielokrotnie wspominanych tutaj Szwedów.

Znamy te zabiegi, słyszeliśmy po wielokroć, ale jak wspomniałem, talent muzyków pozwala przekuć je na znakomite, wciągające partie. Kompozycyjny kunszt pozwolił odpowiednio rozmieścić akcenty, budować dramaturgię poszczególnych kawałków. Muzyka z duszą, czego chcieć więcej. Z zainteresowaniem będę śledził rozwój tej grupy. Talentu nie sposób jej odmówić.

Sometimes there comes along a band that instead of making a regular old concept album creates a vivid world through their music that takes the listener to a new level of thought. Whales and Aurora happens to be a band that can create powerful songs which makes for an amazing concept album. Their recent release “The Shipwreck” is a dark distorted journey with crushing guitars and heavy growling vocals. To classify this band is extremely hard to do because the sound takes on a variety of influences. From the progressive drone riffs to the black metal style vocals the music is a perfect blend of all different kinds of heavy music styles. These Italian metal musicians bring forth seven magnificently produced songs that create an all around spectacular album.

When I first looked at the album cover I was intrigued by the black and white photo of a ship sailing on rough ominous seas. Once I heard the first track, “Refused Recounting Words” I felt that the album cover captured the essence of the music. The riff in the song is heavily distorted and builds up slowly until a strong chord is struck creating a shock to my ears. Along with the powerfully distorted guitars the drumming adds tremendously to the songs overall sound. The lead singer starts singing and I am taken back by the raw aggressive emotion. Another great part about the song is the band slows down tempo to create a mellow doom feel and it contrasts nicely with the heavy thundering parts. The second song “Achieving the Unavoidable” is a long piece where I am hooked from beginning to end. This song’s mellow part comes in the beginning where there is a strong focus on the drums. I enjoy the drummer’s timing and his rhythms are well planned out with the bass guitar. In the middle section there is this synchronized crash of all the instruments while the singer is screaming over the noise.

The third song, “The Aground Hard-Ship” is my favorite song on the album. The song is just composed of a heavily distorted guitar hitting chords with plenty of reverb. This song reminds me of the drone music created by SunO))) and Earth. The guitar hits a coupe notes and the feedback echoes from my speakers creating a grand distorted atmosphere. I like songs that are simple, but bring forth a drone quality that takes me by surprise. On the song, “Awaken by the Aurora” the band slows the music down and incorporates a piano which creates a very mellow vibe. The song is calm and creates a comforting atmosphere with a classic progressive rock quality. Another song I enjoy on this album is, “A New Awareness.” This song does a great job summing up the powerful emotions created on the first two songs and is more triumphant instead of dark. There is this part when the singer is singing and the backing instruments are building up while he increases his growls. The way the band finishes off the album with the last song “Floating on Calm Waters” is a perfect wrap up of this intense musical journey. On this song the listener can look back on all the heavily distorted aggression while hearing a calm rhythm that is like ship floating a still intact after a massive storm.

Whales and Aurora’s brilliant concept album “The Shipwreck” ties in very powerful lyrical and musical themes to create a solid release. Now the growls can become hard to understand and sometimes seem a bit overdone, but I believe they work well with the heavily produced explosion of noise. Also, I understand people do not like too much distortion, but the sound creates some great musical atmospheres that are extremely heavy. All the songs on this album are created with great consideration to detail and work together to make a captivating album. I highly recommend this album to progressive doom metal fans that enjoy noise that takes them on a journey through rough seas. Trust me at the end of this album you will think that you have just finished a novel even though you did not read any words. A strong release and can’t wait to hear more from these guys in the future.

Erinnert sich hier noch jemand an das Jahr 2008 und CULT OF LUNA, die mit “Eternal Kingdom” ihr persönliches Manifest veröffentlicht haben? Nun, die Jungs sind zurück. Allerdings unter neuem Namen, mit neuer Besetzung und neuer Herkunft. WHALES AND AURORA, so lautet der Name der vierköpfigen Combo aus dem schönen Italien, welche das bereits erwähnte Meisterwerk in maritime Gefilde transferiert. Doch halt! Das ist kein Grund, “The Shipwreck” schon vor dem ersten Ton aus dem Gedächtnis zu verbannen. Denn auch wenn WHALES AND AURORA sicher nicht für den Innovationspreis im Genre “Extrem” vorgeschlagen werden, so haben sie doch gute Chancen in anderen Kategorien abzuräumen.

Das Erfolgsrezept ist dabei im Grunde denkbar einfach: Man nehme fiese, schleppende Passagen irgendwo zwischen Doom und Sludge und kontrastiere diese mit allerhand akustischem und leisem Zierrat. Das können psychedelische Parts sein, das kann fein akzentuierter Post-Rock sein, nur verträumt / nachdenklich / entspannend muss es sein. Soweit zur Theorie.
Dass die praktische Umsetzung weitaus schwerer ist, zeigen viele Experimente aus diesem Genre, welche sich entweder in ermüdender Langsamkeit verlieren oder zu wenig Eier für die tiefen Gitarren besitzen. Beide Extreme finden wir auf “The Shipwreck” nicht mal ansatzweise. Stattdessen erwartet den Hörer ein perfekt ausbalancierte Mischung aus Laut und Leise, aus Erdrückend und Entrückend, die immer wieder mit tollen Nuancen und Feinheiten im Songwriting brilliert.
WHALES AND AURORA verkaufen sich dabei melodischer als ihr großer Bruder aus Schweden und öffnen ihr Klangbild für fast schon ausufernde post-rockige Strukturen. Damit geben sie dem Hörer Gelegenheit sich von den bedrohlich-anrollenden Sludge-Wellen zu erholen und das bereits Gehörte zu verdauen. Das ist auch bitter nötig, denn sobald die Verstärker auf “On” stehen, macht die junge italienische Combo keine Gefangenen und zelebriert Post-Metal nach allen Regeln der Kunst. Sei es Sänger Alberto Brunello, der unglaublich kraftvoll aber gleichzeitig monoton seine Stimmbänder malträtiert, seien es die zähen und zermahlenden Gitarrenriffs oder das treibende Drumming – Am Ende der Songs flüchtet sich der Hörer gleich einem angeschlagenen Boxer in die Ringecke. Das Handtuch fliegt in den insgesamt 42 Minuten Spielzeit allerdings kein einziges Mal, dafür sorgt die jeweils folgende akustische Entspannung besser als es jede Zurede eines Trainers könnte.

Lately, there’s been an awful lot of both creaking ocean-themed concepts and atmospheric hardcore albums knocking about and this little beauty hammers both of those increasingly prevalent events together. These points might lead one to believe that Whales & Aurora are fans of emotionally visceral bands like Devil Sold His Soul or Amia Venera Landscape but having checked out their list of influences it appears they are more likely to listen to blissed-out rumblers like Lento, Mastodon and Russian Circles. Ignoring the incendiary wailing, the Italians’ debut, The Shipwreck, certainly lives up to that premise with the band cutting no corners and sinking their teeth in for long, rotational runs to strengthen their musical structures.

Maximum volume and total immersion is required to fully appreciate the band’s efforts here, although blissful sonic drifting is made difficult and, suprisingly, the culprit isn’t Alberto Brunello’s vocal. Andrea Segnini Campesato’s snare mic has been wound up a tad too loud (trust me, you won’t miss its intermittent, aggressive “pop” sound). Instantly recognisable when it’s pounding upon the creaking bones of “Achieving The Unavoidable” it happily sits deeper in the mix when the swathes of bottom-end cut in through the rougher sections of “Recounting Words”.

The tracks tend to rely on repeating chords which ride over peaks and through troughs, true forces of nature, but every now and then the more experimental edge of the band rises to the fore. It can be found attacking us though the monotonous wave-crashing chord strikes of “The Aground Hard Ship” and sending our minds spiralling with the mesmerically chiming, twinkling strings of the glorious “Abandoned Among Echoes” and the somewhat clunkier “Awakened By The Aurora”.

The combined and varied musical backgrounds of the band has led to an interesting mixture of pleasure and pain; never quite tearing you apart they manage to crush and soothe in equal measure. There’s a depressive quality that settles over the listener like a cowl (the blackened gloom of “Floating On Calm Waters” is the maritime equivalent of a death march), yet the tanker-sized riffs that power the beast are from an entirely different place. The Shipwreck may not ultimately prove to be their greatest achievement, but Whales & Aurora’s waves of attack are something that just have to be experienced to be believed.

ISIS haben mit ihrer Auflösung eine ziemlich große Lücke hinterlassen, die bereits von allerhand Bands zu füllen versucht wird. Besagte Lücke hat sich mittlerweile auch bis nach Italien herumgesprochen, wie WHALES AND AURORA mit “The Shipwreck” beweisen.

Gut, das klingt jetzt sicherlich härter als es gemeint war. Denn zwei Dinge muss ich nach Genuss(!) der sieben Songs festhalten: Erstens hätte ich ohne die Hintergrundinformationen niemals gemerkt, dass WHALES AND AURORA aus Italien (genauer aus Vicenza) stammen – das ist angesichts unsäglichen Power Metals und oft arg misslungenen Schwarzmetalls ein großes Kompliment. Tatsächlich schafft es der Fünfer, über die gesamte Spielzeit von gut 42 Minuten atmosphärisch integer und vor allem glaubwürdig zu agieren.

Zweitens: Natürlich klingen WHALES AND AURORA nicht zu einhundert Prozent nach ISIS, sondern präsentieren eine Melange aus genannter Marschrichtung (die eingänglichen Bemerkungen dienten also zuallererst der Orientierung) und Doom Metal, psychedelischen Elementen und hier und dort auch Postrock. Man kann “The Shipwreck” also guten Gewissens ein eigenes Gesicht attestieren, vor allem wenn man bedenkt, dass sich die Band erst 2008 zusammengefunden hat.

Nichtsdestoweniger offenbaren die sieben Songs hier und da noch Schwächen: Einige Längen haben sich eingeschlichen, die Arrangements sind noch nicht vollends ausgereift und auch die Dynamik der Songs lässt immer mal etwas zu wünschen übrig. Das ist natürlich jetzt Gemecker auf hohem Niveau – und ich bin mir sicher, dass Nicolò De Franceschi und seine Bandkollegen diese Schwachpunkte auf kommenden Veröffentlichungen nach und nach ausmerzen werden. Für jetzt ist “The Shipwreck” das eindrucksvolle Zeugnis einer jungen Band mit enormem Potential.

Slow Burn Records, a sub label by Solitude Productions which focusses more on core and such and sludge and post metal than the mother label, give us the Italian Whales And Aurora this month. When I see whales and oceans I inadvertently think of bands such as Mastodon and Ortega from The Netherlands. Whales And Aurora can best be placed in the corner of Ortega, so long spun out songs with eruptions and calm passages with hardcore like vocals. Think Cult Of Luna. Where Ortega has quite a sound of their own these Italian whalers keep mighty close to Cult Of Luna. It is nice listen but misses the suspense build up the masters from Sweden do possess. But given the fact that ‘The Shipwreck’ is Whales And Aurora’s debut album I am looking forward to what a second album by them will bring us.
